DORCHESTER VERSUS HITLER
Colin Churchill

£6.95

Between 1939 and 1945 Dorchester was in the front line of the war against Nazi Germany. This is the story of the town and those who lived in it during those years – of the men, women and children who endured the threat of invasion, air raids, rationing, the daily shortages and uncertainties of war. There is humour, nostalgia, occasional tragedy. It tells of evacuees, air raid wardens, the Home Guard, the fighter pilots from RAF Warmwell, the soldiers who passed through the Barracks, the American GI’s who crowded into the town’s pubs during the build-up to D-Day. But its real heroes are Dorchester’s townsfolk, those who listened quietly to their radios on that fateful Sunday when war was declared, only to dance the night away in May 1945 when Hitler and all he stood for were finally defeated. Between 1939 and 1945 Dorchester was in the front line of the war against Nazi Germany.
